Hello Monday

We had a nice, mellow weekend around here.

Friday afternoon Dan was finally back in town from traveling all week for work. Hanging out, bike ramps in the yard and  Pho soup and lettuce wraps for our Friday night!

raspberriesSaturday morning, before the rain came we went out to a friend of Dan’s boss’s house.  They garden is crazy big and so much is ripe for the picking right now.  Our haul was full of raspberries, peaches, tomatoes, huge cucumbers, some carrots, asian pears and peppers.

gheeAnd Dan made some Ghee...aka clarified butter.  It’s a great replacement for using oils for cooking/baking.

Sam is doing great in preschool.  I love hearing about what they learn, play and sing 🙂  He just loves Miss Lynette!

Have a great week!
